Origins: Native to Europe (Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom, Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, Belarus, Moldova, Russian Federation, Ukraine, Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Romania, Yugoslavia, France, Portugal, Spain, AsiaTemperate (Turkey, Altay, Eastern Siberia, Western Siberia), Africa (Morocco, Azores, Madeira Islands) (GRIN database, Syrett, et al., 2000). 


A European pest to control a New Zealand weed: investigating the safety of heather beetle, Lochmaea suturalis (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) for biological control of heather, Calluna vulgaris
Host-range tests indicated that L. suturalisposes a negligible threat to native New Zealand plants and mosses and litter occurring under Calluna stands in Tongariro National Park are suitable substrates for eggs and pupae. Expand
Screening seeds of Scottish plants for antibacterial activity.
Based on ethnopharmacological and taxonomic information, seeds of 21 Scottish plant species from 14 different families were obtained from authentic seed suppliers. Their n-hexane, dichloromethane andExpand
The Ecology of Severe Moorland Fire on the North York Moors: Seed Distribution and Seedling Establishment of Calluna Vulgaris
1. Regeneration of Calluna vulgaris following normal heath fires is from surviving stem bases or, where survival is poor, from a seed bank. Severe fires causing ignition of surface organic horizonsExpand
A Survey of the Antibacterial Activity of Some New Zealand Honeys
The high antibacterial activity of manuka honey was in many cases due entirely to this non‐peroxide component. Expand
Control of heather (Calluna vulgaris (L.) Hull) by steam treatment: Effects on establishment and early growth of Scots pine
The steamtreatment strongly favoured the establishment and growth of both seeded and planted Scotspine, and the planted seedlings grown in the steamtreated plots had a dry weight more than twice as high when compared to scarified plots. Expand
Exclusion of grass roots from soil organic layers by Calluna: the role of ericoid mycorrhizas.
The role of ericoid mycorrhizal colonization in competition between the dwarf shrub Calluna vulgaris and coarse grass Nardus stricta was investigated, and it was found that Calluna was the superior competitor for nutrients, probably because of its ability to concentrate root growth in the upper organic layer. Expand
The invertebrates of heather and heathland
The ecology of representative examples will be described, and the effects of fragmentation and isolation of the heathlands on the distribution and abundance of invertebrates discussed. Expand
Long-term effects of excluding sheep from hill pastures in North Wales
From 1957 to 1968 a series of nine experiments was established to determine the effects of excluding sheep from hill pasture in Snowdonia. Each experiment consisted of thre ungrazed plots and sixExpand
Early inbreeding depression and pollen competition in Calluna vulgaris (L.) Hull
The results indicate that the reduced seed set observed in self-pollination is more likely the result of inbreeding depression rather than a late-acting self-incompatibility system. Expand
Evaluation of anti-inflammatory activity of some Swedish medicinal plants. Inhibition of prostaglandin biosynthesis and PAF-induced exocytosis.
Plants used in Swedish traditional medicine to treat inflammatory diseases and/or wounds were selected, based on literature data, for evaluation of inhibitory activity on prostaglandin biosynthesisExpand
